A Sewing Companion

I had to share this little needlework treasure with you; it is called a "Sewing Companion".... and I love it so very much, I have made several of them...and I recently sent one to a very dear friend for her birthday. It is done completely in the hoop on my embroidery machine and was digitized by Birdhouse Cottage Crafts. There is a pocket for your scissors...a wool page for your pins and needles...under the wool is page of quilt batting to collect your orts...and under those pages is a little hidden pocket - perfect for a needle threader, package of needles, or a skein of floss.
This fancy little "book" travels well and gets loads of attention...having this little companion in my stitching bag just makes me happy! Now that my work is a little more under control, I plan to make time for a little more sewing/embroidery this week....look for more fun photos in the next couple days....until then I hope you find time to work on a project that brightens your day....


  1. And your dear friend LOVES the needlebook! It's beautiful, my friend!


  2. Lovely! A very thoughtful gift, great job!
